Thank you to everyone who entered our Nurses Week GiveAway contests. We had an overwhelming response and we have a lot of winners to announce. I also want to once again say a BIG THANK YOU all of our wonderful sponsors for their generous donations to make this a successful celebration of the nursing profession.
Please be sure to check out all of their websites and follow their social media to show your thanks and support to them as well.
Remember the American Nurses Association 2016 Theme for Nurses Week is Culture of Safety, It Starts with YOU. Always do your part to uphold the safety of you, your staff and your patients. Learn more at the ANA website.
I hope everyone had a great Nurses Week! Nurses are always overworked and underpaid and token thank yous can easily be tossed aside. But even the smallest of tokens should be respected. Employers realistically cannot afford to provide huge gifts and some don’t even bother to recognize Nurses Week at all so if you received even just a thank you from your employer, please be grateful. Perhaps next year you’ll get involved in the process to help your employer present a better recognition. Note too that some people are just NOT party planners and have no clue how to put on a celebration. So those of you who are so talented in this aspect, please step forward. It isn’t always that they want to neglect the celebration, they just have no clue.
